During Steve Jobs keynote at the WWDC earlier today, it was announced that Netflix is developing an app for the iPhone which would allow customers to stream movies on their iPhone.
Following the announcement of the Netflix iPhone app, Pulitzer prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert tweeted that he
“will never, ever, watch a movie on my iPhone.” Ebert’s comment made me wonder — how many of you have, or would ever, watch a movie on an iPhone (or iPhone sized device)?
Personally, I would have loved to have had such an app in my years taking the Muni across town in San Francisco, but others seem strongly opposed to watching movies on a small media device. It’s not like this is anything new, people buy/rent movies throughiTunes and watch them on their phone every day. I’ve never watched a movie, but I have watched television episodes on the device.
